'Mama's Family' Blocks on CMT; Nick@Nite Pulls 'Murphy', 'NewsRadio'

Mama's Family is coming back to cable in some sort of way starting later this month! The popular '80s sitcom will air in a 10-episode marathon on Saturday, December 30 from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET/PT on CMT - Country Music Television. The first ten episodes are scheduled to air on that evening. That is part of CMT's New Year's Weekend, with a Hee Haw 10-episode marathon scheduled on New Year's Eve (Dec. 31) from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. ET/PT. On New Year's Day, spend the first day of the year with The Dukes of Hazzard from 12 noon to 2 a.m., with a mix of classic episodes, the Reunion movie, Inside Fame special, and the Dukes in Hollywood movie. And if you missed those Mama's Family and Hee Haw episodes, CMT will re-air them in two blocks. Mama's Family on Tuesday, Jan. 2 from 8 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. and Wednesday, Jan. 3 from 11 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. Hee Haw will re-air on Tuesday, Jan. 2 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Wednesday, Jan. 3 from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.
It is still not confirmed if they have any plans for Mama's Family to be a part of their regular line-up, as CMT has only released their scheduled through Jan. 7 thus far. But you can still watch Mama's Family on broadcast television on the i Network weeknights at 8 & 8:30 p.m.

Nick@Nite has made a schedule change for 5:30 a.m. Full House will start airing every morning at 5:30 a.m. starting this coming Monday night (early Tuesday morning), that will replace Murphy Brown which was airing late Mon-Fri and NewsRadio which was airing late Sat-Sun. Both shows will not be scheduled elsewhere, and thus is off the line-up.
In January Nick@Nite will have some minor schedule changes, and these two shows are not a part of the line-up. We will post January tomorrow, and TV Land January as well, which includes when M*A*S*H will air regularly. So come on back tomorrow for that!
